Not the rodent type though.... I want to scream!!!! I went in for my appt today thinking that I would have my colposcopy, NO.....

She did do the visiual part I assume. I believed that she did the viniger test, (felt her swab something in there), BUT NO biopsy. I have to go back the end of this month and have the colposcopy with biopsy done under anesthesia. Why didn't she just schedule that to begin with???

She did say that the reason she didn't do the biopsy is because of the posibility of bleeding and couldn't/wouldn't be able to control it in her office. That I understand, but why not just schedule the colposcopy under anesthesia to begin with.....???

Also, I had asked her if the test came back that it was yet another recurrence what would the game plan be. She couldn't/wouldn't give me a straight answer.

So here I am again in limbo, awaiting tests and results thereof. I just wish that there was some way of knowning what is going to happen.

Also on a different note, I had met this lovely lady that was getting ready to do chemo (her 16th for OVCA) and she seemed so (not depressed) but resigned to the fact that she wasn't going to be here for much longer. It hit a tender part in me, wondering what will happen to me. I have lost a bladder to this disease, I do not want to have any more surgeries (if at all possible), I know many more of you have went thru so much more and it make me feel like such a whiner to be complaining, but RATS......Cancer stinks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am sorry that I am whining all I need is a good

Thank you and God Bless each and everyone of you!!!!!!!

(((Jane))) You're right--CANCER STINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so sorry you are having this setback. I'm going to assume that your doc wanted to take a look at things and see if there was anything going on. You know, I had an abnormal PAP once and my doc found NOTHING on colposcopy, so maybe your doc was hoping that there would be nothing and no need for a biopsy. My gyn/onc's nurse told me that sometimes they put women under general for a thorough pelvic exam because they can't always see everything when we're awake (because we can't fully relax). So, maybe your doc just wants to be sure to do an extra-thorough job. It stinks that you have to wait until the end of the month (you've already waited so long to get to this point).

I will keep you in my thoughts and 'ers. I know the waiting will be difficult, but I hope the time passes quickly.

You can here anytime you want. We all have very big shoulders and we can take it.

Hang in there, Jane! We'll wait with you.

I'm so sorry for all that you have went thru.....how disappointing to walk away from the Dr's office feeling that way......

But think of it as a positive.....your dr. is being careful about the possibility of bleeding. I would guess that it is in your best interest to have that biopsy done in the hospital.

I will be thinking of you and praying that all works well for you!!

s Jane

Darn. I can imagine how disappointed you are. Back in the land of waiting and waiting. It seems like so many of my oldest friends on CC are running into problems. Wouldn't it ge great if we could just treat it and put it all behind us. I guess it is not to be. Hang in there.

Rats is Right

I know what it's like to be ready mentally for somethinng big like a colposcopy and then bang. Doesn't happen. That crashing feeling is awful. However, it sounds as if you have a good cautious doctor who has your safety in mind. Better that than someone who figures that if she does itand you bleed, well, they'll go to plan B, C, D... Now we'll be with you waiting and during the biopsy and waiting for results, which just better be benign after all this.

Sometimes screaming, yelling, & ranting are the only therapeutic things left for us to do. Go ahead and have a good scream. This cancer business is a lot of waiting and waiting.
Please know that we are waiting and praying with you. If you need someone to scream with you, I can do that too.

Dear Jane:

I'm so sorry just know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. I hate the waiting thing that we have to do too, you would think that we would get used to it but it never gets any easier for me.

Love and Prayers,

Jane. I was so hoping all this would be behind you and sorry you are waiting again. I have never gotten used to the waiting. I believe the others are right and your Dr is just being extra thorough. I pray for you and us all every day.

Oh, Jane, I'm so sorry things didn't work out the way you wanted them to. It really stinks, especially when you've psyched yourself up to deal with whatever procedure. Hopefully, the next few weeks will go quickly for you.

God bless, Jane.

Dear (((Jane))) I am so sorry your test was delayed and after you were prepared and went to the office, etc.; but I agree that your doctor is being careful and thorough and that is really most important. I know it is very disappointing to have to wait several weeks; I always hate the waiting but unfortunately we have no alternative. I hope the time goes by quickly and will keep you in prayer. s and blessing, peggiesue
